Happy Blizzard!

Well, the move went very smooth and we arrived in Iowa at our new home on midnight 12/22/2008. The church family here (and the whole community for that matter) is so loving and caring. I felt at home right away and I haven't felt "home" since our first move out to Maine! I've made many good friends, joined some groups and found a great job only 10 miles away. The kids seem to have made the transition ok. They are still making friends and figuring out where they fit in here, but they have both joined 4-H and Uriah played football this fall! Tori found a great trampoline and tumbling gym 20 minutes away and we have really enjoyed that again. Burt is trying to find his groove here and is almost there.

We had a blizzard all day today! No one went anywhere! Tomorrow the high is 5 degrees without factoring in wind chill, but I have to go to work and Burt has a doctor appointment. The kids don't have school though.

I need to go to bed, but hopefully it won't be another year before I post again. :)

God's blessings on you!

Review of The American Patriot's Bible, NKJV

To sum it up in one word - WOW! What an amazing book! This is the perfect Bible for any American history buffs and patriots. I knew that this country's founding fathers had great faith and relied on God to guide their works, but I had no idea how much of our country was founded on faith. I had read some of the reviews before getting this book that said how fundamentally wrong this book was and how you just can't combine our government, and our country for that matter, with the Bible and religion. I knew they were wrong, but after seeing the book I realized how wrong they really were. How can you NOT talk about the early days of our country and the religion it was based on?

My favorite part of the book was learning what Bible verses our presidents put their hands on while taking their oath of office. I also greatly enjoyed the full color illustrations and all the amazing, little known stories about our founding fathers and past presidents. I can (almost) guarantee that anyone who reads this book will learn something they didn't know about the history of our great country, the United States of America.

The workmanship of the book itself was a higher quality than the norm making this a perfect gift Bible. The typeface was a little small so that elderly might have a hard time reading it.

I received this book as part of the Thomas Nelson Publishers book review program. They are requesting non-biased reviews of their books that contain both positive and negative feedback. You can get more information at:

I did something I shouldn't have done. Something just for me.
I joined Thomas Nelson Publishers' book review blog program! They are going to send me a free book and all I have to do is read it and post a review on my blog and a public retail site like Amazon or Barnes & Noble. I am so excited to be getting free books I can hardly wait! If you want to look into the program, just go to:

Happy reading!

PS: Just because they are sending you a free book does not mean you have to write a positive review on it. They want you to be honest, which I love! Thank you Thomas Nelson!
